Decorative holiday mailboxes are being recalled by Target due to laceration hazards

Santa Mail Box Recalled Due to Laceration HazardTarget is recalling about 174,300 letters to Santa decorative mailboxes.

The mail slot on the mailbox can be sharp, posing a laceration hazard.

Target has received nine reports of sharp mail slot openings and seven incidents of lacerations with three requiring medical attention.

This recall involves the Bullseye’s playground metal mailbox. The mailbox was sold in red or white and measures about 7 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 10 inches high.

The words “Letters to Santa” are printed on the front of the mailbox in white or black letters. The product item number is printed on the white sticker located on the bottom of the mailbox sold in stores and on the inner packaging of the two-count mailboxes sold online.

Mailboxes with the following product item numbers are included in the recall:

Item number

Product name

234-17-8556

The mailboxes were sold at Target stores nationwide for the single mailbox and online at www.target.com for the two-count mailboxes from October 2021 through November 2021. The price was $5 for single mailbox and $10 for two-count mailboxes.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mailbox and return it to any Target Store for a refund, a Target gift card. Consumers can also contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the mailbox for a refund, also a Target gift card.
